International Drug Users Day - Alice Springs
Join us for "a wrap and a yarn" at NTAHC Alice Springs on International Drug Users Day 2019.
11.30am to 1.30pm - FREE
"On the 1st of November, we celebrate and emphasise the diversity and strength of our community. The world over, vast numbers of people from every section of society use illicit drugs. They use drugs for different reasons, in different ways, in different contexts.
Though we are too often silenced and side-lined in debate and in the formation of policy and legislation that applies to us. Today we assert our diversity and our ability and right to exercise self-determination and agency. We demand the right to be respected as experts on our own lives, motivations, and experiences.
We will not stand by silently whilst decisions are made about us and not with us. Today we shout ‘Nothing About Us, Without Us’, and we refer to the inclusion of our diverse community as a whole"
